Pair of Neoclassical style gilt bronze three-light sconces
French, 19th Century
Height 75cm, width 37cm, depth 30cm
The sconces in this pair are after a famous model by Pierre-François Feuchère, one of the leading craftsmen of the late Louis XVI period. Each sconce, crafted from gilt bronze, features a backplate modelled as a quiver of arrows, with a ribbon-tied crest above and a pinecone finial below. Each sconce supports three light branches, each branch scrolled and richly detailed. The three branches of each are draped with a floral garland, superbly cast from gilt bronze.
